Catholic Community Grants

Catholic Community Grants provide assistance to non-profits, parishes, Catholic schools, and other ministries. They are funded from various endowments established for the purpose of grant-giving. Many of these endowments are designated by the donors for specific purposes. Grants vary in amount and are awarded each grant cycle. Non-profits do not have to be Catholic as long as their mission is in alignment with Catholic teaching.
